The project is oriented towards the application of innovative phytomanagement strategies in polluted areas. Phytomanagement is a phytotechnology, derived from phytoremediation, based on the use of plants (trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants) to control the risk associated with the presence of pollutants at degraded sites, while at the same time generating products (such as wood, resin, essential oils, bioenergy, and eco-catalysts) from harvested biomass, as well as enhancing the provision of ecosystem services (e.g. carbon sequestration, erosion control, and habitat creation).

AAD is a collaborator partner in this project, in which the Centre for Environmental Studies (CEA), NEIKER, the UPV and the CSIC all participate.
